LSU sophomore running back Lanard Fournette, the younger brother of Leonard Fournette, was arrested and booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison after he was allegedly caught gambling with a false ID at L'Auberge Casino in Baton Rouge on Monday. Per The Advocate:
Fournette, 20, of Slidell, was given bond of $1,000. An LSU team spokesman did not immediately respond to a message for comment.
Security video showed Fournette playing at a “craps table” for 16 minutes at about 1:30 p.m., before walking to the player’s services counter. Fournette then allegedly presented his real ID to the cashier for a cash withdrawal, who determined his age and contacted security.
Fournette was detained at the casino, but left before an officer's arrival, police said. When being questioned, Fournette said he used another person's ID to enter the casino, according to police.
